The third episode of the promising Bunheads was rather ho hum. The show needs to establish a need for Michelle to stay in town with a mother-in-law she barely knows. That business was taken care of with this episode. So this episode itself was nothing to write home about. I could point out its blandness, but I like the two leads and Amy Sherman-Pallidino, the executive producer, so let’s just say this is not a must-see, while hoping that next week the show can concentrate on the relationships at hand.
Basically, there was a sit down with Hubbell’s lawyer who explained that Michelle now owns the house and land. Both Michelle and Fanny were stunned, especially Fanny, who figured she’d be homeless.
An annoying, self-interested real estate scared Michelle hoping to get her to $ell. Fortunately, Michelle got stranded on a multimillionaire’s property and had to meet him. The eligible, handsome millionaire gave Michelle some good advice and so she won’t get conned into selling.
I do expect this debonaire catch will soon be available for Michelle, they’ll date and we’ll have a cliff hanger featuring the future of their relationship. How unlike anyone’s life. Naively, I still Bunheads think has potential and even if it’s just a Cinderella story.
In essence it was an hour of set ups and contrivances with the occasional wit.
Seems there was no Bunheads this week probably due to the holiday. It’s too bad since due to the high temps sitting inside watching TV is a good way to cope.
